Female ejaculation orsquirting not only arouse controversy among the experts. In fact, since Whipple and Perry (1981) published an article on the subject, much progress has been made in trying to answer the most common questions related to this topic: can women really ejaculate like men? If so, where exactly does the fluid come from, is it the case only of a few women?
The discussion of female ejaculation is based on the confessions of a large group of women (according to some studies, between 40-54% of the female population). A lot of women began to recognize that they were expelling fluid at the time of their orgasmas in the case of male ejaculation.
As Gilliland shows (2009), this event can have a great influence on the sexual life of women who experience it. For some, it's embarrassing and humiliating, and for others it's a source of interest and pride. Without doubt, the lack of information is a major obstacle to the understanding and the assimilation of this event, even to its definition.
Is there a female ejaculation?
A biochemistry laboratory at Van Buren Hospital has initiated much needed research in the field of female orgasm. Recall that the fetal substrate in its origin is feminine. That is, the woman must have an embryonic prostatic structure so that the man can develop the corresponding male prostate.
The results suggest that the existence of female prostatic tissue can produce non-urinary genital discharge and sexually induced during orgasm (Venegas, Carmona Mena, Alvarez, & Arévalo, 2006). This discharge is called "female ejaculation".
Most experts agree that the expelled fluid is not urineas previously thought. There is also agreement that female prostate tissue (or Skene glands) is the primary cause of this expulsion. Skene's glands are homologous to the male prostate and have been called the "female prostate". They secrete prostate-specific antigen, and their function is related to urethral lubrication and female ejaculation.
Every woman is a world, just like her sexuality. There is no specific type of ejaculated liquid. In practice, some claim to expel only a few drops while others expel an amount equivalent to several cups of coffee. Some describe it as thick and whitish, while others regard it as transparent and watery.
"In some women, G-spot stimulation, orgasm and female ejaculation are linked, but in the meantime, in other women, this relationship does not exist.Some women have reported orgasm with stimulation ejaculation clitoral and others have ejaculated without orgasm. "

Female ejaculation and G-spot
Masters and Johnson (1966) argued that the only primary erogenous organ in women is the clitoris. He is now admitted that the vagina and clitoris are primary erogenous zones (Zwang, 1987).
Anatomically, the G-spot is not part of the vagina, but the urethra (the female prostate). It can be stimulated by the movements of the penis or fingers. It can be perceived by increasing the volume of an area of a few centimeters in the anterior wall of the vagina, producing intense female orgasms (Arango de Montis, 2008).
These findings mean that adequate stimulation of either of these two female organs can lead to orgasm.
"The G-point is not a specific point but a functional structure, it is an erectile, diffuse and erogenous zone that constitutes the fascia of Halban."
A study revealed that 72.7% of women reach orgasm by stimulating different areas of the vaginal walls. 90.9% of women show an erogenicity by digital stimulation of these areas. When the clitoris is stimulated with the fingers, the proportions are the same. In particular, researchers have observed the duration of orgasms generated by the digital stimulation of the clitoris and vagina.
Thanks to the results, they discovered that the clitoris has about twice as much erogenous sensitivity as the vagina (Useche, 2001). In fact, one study has shown that most women only need clitoral stimulation to ejaculate (Álvarez, f.).
Many sexologists and feminists agree on the absurdity of reducing female sexuality in point G. In 1950, Ernest Grafenberg himself (who lends his name to the famous point G) declared that there is no part of a woman's body that does not provide a sexual response. That is, sex develops in many places, starting with our own thoughts (García, 2005).
Ejaculation: similarities and differences between the sexes
There is no doubt that orgasm is accompanied by rhythmic contractions in the internal sexual organs, both female and male. Unlike men, Female ejaculation does not always accompany orgasm and, in most cases, it occurs in the early stages of the sexual response. Mainly in the first phase, the excitement.
Another difference noted by Amy Gilliland (2009) is that the volume of female ejaculation increases with the number of orgasms a woman experiences during sex. This can be influenced by the stage of the menstrual cycle in which you are and by the stimulation you need for this to happen.
Just as the fetus in his early years of training is female, female ejaculation contains substances that are also found in sperm : fructose, prostate specific antigen and acid phosphatase (Álvarez, f.).
Break the myths about female ejaculation
In ancient times, it was believed that without ejaculation, there would be no fertilization. This applied to both men and women in order to standardize the sexual response. On the other hand, some psychoanalysts of the time considered that vaginal orgasm in women was "mature orgasm" (García, 2005). But without a doubt, the biggest mistakes are those made by people who say that the more a woman ejaculates, the greater her sexual satisfaction (Álvarez, n.
Making feminine pleasure visible through an inverse ejaculation convention with respect to gender (García, 2005). In short, advances in scientific knowledge break myths and broaden minds, freeing women from old gender norms.
